This is a great opportunity to be involved in something a little bit different, and fun.

Or even if you really want to see how it all happens.

Calling for

  • extras
  • assistant/work experience
  • behind the scenes stills or video
  • back up MUA (for natural)

Major project.

Brief description of the shoot:
A Wedding scenario – an unlikely situation that can cause havok and chaos to that ‘one special day’ with a real ‘F&@# you’ attitude within the characters involved, involving a comical aspect. The setting is highly stylised, set up in a function centre.
Main characters are tbc, a bride, a groom and a dominatrix.

I require some ‘extras’ to play guests at the wedding setting, each person will have a certain pose and idea, expression happening within the whole image.

Shoot details
Date: Saturday 4th October 2008
Time: 12 pm – 2 pm
Venue: The Club Caroline Springs, Western Fwy, Victoria
Catering: provided
MUA: provided

There are NO age restriction for extras. (But under 18’s will need their parents to sign a model release)
Have own transport to the venue.

Formal wear, what you would wear to a wedding.
Girls – pastel like colours if possible, no black. If in doubt, bring alone a selection of outfits.
Guys – Long sleeved shirt, bring a tie for option, suit like pants and dark shoes.

Being involved in this project is voluntary. The final image/s will be emailed for folio use. Prints hmm maybe. All shoots are catered too – no one goes hungry!

I have to plan one more shoot, (An amazing funeral scene!!!) most likely within the following week, which i need extras for as well, if interested mention this for those details. TBA

If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask.
